rejected last-minute pleas to delay the bill's passage. even president obama, who won michigan by ten points last month, was unable to sway state lawmakers at the last minute during his visit to detroit. but governor snyder says it was the union who started this fight in the first place. >> i asked them not to go forward, and the reasons i said it is you're going to start a very divisive discussion regarding collective bargaining first, but it also will get into right to work. the right-to-work discussion continued to escalate and was becoming very divisive. the way i viewed it is it's on the table, it's a hot issue, let's show some leadership. so i said when i reviewed it, it's a good thing. it's about being pro-worker, it's about economic development. we will get more jobs coming to michigan because we're going to be more competitive. >> the governor also argued his state's union battle was completely different from what unfolded in wisconsin and ohio. >> i think it's important to make a distinction with wisconsin and ohio. that was about collective bargaining. that was about the re
missiles. bill: president obama will sit down with the nation's top ceos in washington today for new talks on how to avoid the fiscal cliff. the president plans to deliver remarks and answer questions during a meeting of a business roundtable. critics say the president will call on business leaders to press lawmakers about raising the debt ceiling. while that is happening we expect to hear from house speaker john boehner any moment right now on the hill for the latest on what's happening on fiscal matters. martha? martha: meanwhile, there are new evacuations that have been ordered in a community where a train carrying toxic chemicals derailed nearly a week ago. 100 families told they have to leave their homes in new jersey near philadelphia. they have to play it safe until the last of the hazard does gas is removed. >> what we'll do we'll pump liquid in that dissolves the vinyl chloride. we'll pump that liquid back out into the highway truck. we have a derailment of hazardous of materials over and in a waterway and a community adjacent to it, right next to it. martha: the rail line is payi

is right. this was the exact thing they voters for obama decided to shoot down this union bill. >> it's surprising. >> it caught us all by surprise. it isn't going to be like wisconsin. i think this bill is going to pass. and the situation in wisconsin was different. you had to get a quorum, and they tried to prevent a vote on the bill and took a month of protests. i don't think that will happen. just need a simple majority in michigan and they will pass the bill and they won't have a chance to repeal it until 2014. they will have to win back the senate, the house and the governor. >> it is likely to stop in michigan. you look at states with right to work legislation, the whole deep south and a couple states in the west but the upper midwest and northeast has tried to stay away from that because of the strong tradition of union organizing in the state. you have indiana going the other direction and michigan looking like they might, and wisconsin could be next up although the governor hasn't said how he's going to proceed on that and i think it's going to embolden the an eye union forc
's a shame that republicans are playing into mr. obama's hands negotiating in public among themselves prematurely giving up on the tax issue and undermining house speaker john boehner in the process. but in "the weekly standard" bill kristol hit back at "the journal" take on this saying it would be great if "the journal" editors had a better idea what republicans could do. they don't. if the house republicans follow the editors over the cliff, the only effect, i'm afraid, will be to turn a manageable reret in december into a panicked strategic route in january. "the new york times" points out that even if republicans agree to the president's key demand that the top tax rates return to the clinton era level, it would only be a quarter of the $1.6 trillion the white house is demanding leaving battles and limits on deductions and exemptions and estate and gift taxes all for another day. then there are other political minefields of entitlement cuts in spending. by the way, by choosing to make his fiscal cliff pitch in michigan, the president is stepping into the fierce battle over worker
if congress does nothing, and president obama is the only person that can sign a bill into law and quite honestly, senator harry reid is the only person in the senate that can pass a bill in the senate as well. it sounds like people like howard dean want everybody's taxes to go up. maybe we should feel fortunate that president obama only wants the top two% to g two percent t. >> greta: do you anticipate republicans will vote for a rate increase if this should come to a vote? >> i don't believe they'll vote for a rate increase. what we'll vote for hopefully is to extend the current tax rates permanently and start working with president obama on true pro growth tax reform, but again, it sounds like treasury secretary geithner is happy to take the economy off the fiscal cliff, and again, if president obama wants to do that, he can do that, it sounds like that's exactly where he wants to go, and you know, what is kind of amazing, maybe republicans should take, you know, a victory lap from the fact that we've actually convinced democrats it's a good thing to maintain the bush tax cuts for at

. >> if their competitor in '16 is going to be hillary clinton supported by bill clinton and presumably a still relatively popular president barack obama, trying to win that will be truly the super bowl. and the republican party today is incapable of competing at that level. >> we just had the super bowl. now we talk about the next one. "new york times" reporter jody cantor interviewed a number of clinton aides about the future plans of hillary clinton and they didn't hold back. jody, great to have you with me today. all corners of clinton world went on record with you about this. you point out the down sides ofa white house run in your piece saying the more serious issue here is she's about 2016, the less she can do. no frank, seen it all memoir. no clients, commissions or controversial positions that could prove problematic. given what the aides told you is it likely she's going to go off the grid for the next several years? >> she's definitely going off the grid for a few weeks or months. her plan is to try to exit the department of state by shortly after inauguration day. and then she really is going
in a reversal says he will sign the bill into law as soon as it hits his desk. in michigan yesterday, president obama said the law was politically driven. susan mcginnis is in washington with details. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, the governor now says he wants the economic boost that the law would bring, the jobs and the companies that would locate there, but many disagree. workers say it's going to push down their pay and benefits and weaken unions. police stand shoulder to shoulder preparing for as many as 10,000 protesters at the michigan state capitol today. >> people have a constitutional right to demonstrate. however, all we ask is that they do it in an orderly, lawful, and civil manner. >> reporter: state legislators vote this morning on a right-to-work bill that would weaken unions. opponents acknowledge they're powerless to stop it. >> at the end of the day they'll be passed and signed by the governor. that doesn't make it right. >> reporter: the bill means michigan workers would no longer have to pay the union fees for negotiating contracts and other services.
because let me read this. it's shameful that republicans are playing in to mr. obama's hands. negotiating in public amongst themselves. prematurely giving up on the tax issue and undermining house speaker boehner in the process to which bill kristol responded, it would be great if they had an idea of what republicans can do. they don't. if they follow the editors over the cliff the only affect i'm afraid would be to turn a retreat in december in to a panicked rout in january. that's an interesting back and forth combined with what you said, as well. >> no, it is. i think you see in that back and forth a conservative outlet, at least the editorial page. some of the fissures within this party. just the direction of the party, there is, again, this big vacuum. there isn't a real leader of the republican party right now and seeing the different camps sort of fighting for primacy and fighting for a voice in terms of what the direction of this party will be not only on this issue but just in terms of larger issues about the direction of the country. >> and michael, as we pointed out, the presid
, that president obama decided to jump in feet first, because on a lot of other state issues he's said let's the states figure this out. on this one, even though the majority of people in michigan support the bill that you have, the idea of it, and 39% of democrats support it, i was surprised that president obama jumped in. were you? >> i'm a little disappointed actually. i expect something greater from a president, a graduate of harvard and columbia. i think he knows better than that. we're not in any way affecting or diminishing people's right to collective bargaining. fact, i vehemently support people's rights to collective bargaining, but i also support their individual right and freedom to choose who they want to associate with or not to associate with, greta. >> why do you think it would make a difference when it comes to job creation? after the bill is signed by this governor, if it is, what will change in michigan? >> i have no question that the governor will sign the bill. what will change is, this we will be removing one of the last remaining obstacleremaining to s that help busi
years. they were very, very close in the senate. president obama voted for a poison pill that took down a promising senate bill at the time. now he's coming back saying he wants to get it done. >> dr. jay talking politics as smooth as a lay-up. thank you for visiting with us. >> my pleasure. take care. >>> up next, a big development of president obama's trip to michigan today. the president steps in to a nasty statewide battle between the governor and big labor. why now? why not wisconsin?

in the common areas of the capitol. president obama said the right to work bill is not about economics and has everything to do with politics. taxpayers have now made a total of about $22.7 billion overall from the government's investment in the bank rescue. aig is now fully private again. and the british bank is going to pay the u.s. a $1.9 billion penalty for breaking u.s. sanction laws. they have transferred money through the u.s. to drug car tails and nations like iron. the sweatshirt is nice and all but i could use a golden lasso. the chill of peppermint. the rich dark chocolate. york peppermint pattie get the sensation. >> she gets the comedians laughing... >> that's hilarious! >> ...and the thinkers thinking. >> okay, so there's wiggle-room in the ten commandments is what you're telling me. >> she's joy behar. ... and current will let me say anything. >> only on current tv.

"this is painful for a liberal to admit, but conservatives have a point when they suggest that america's safety net can sometimes entangle people in a soul-crushing dependency. our poverty programs do rescue many people, don't join the military escape route for poor, rural americans because it's easier to rely on food stamps and disability payments most wrenching of all are the parents who think it's best if a child stays illiterate because then they receive a disability check each month. there's no doubt that some families with seriously disabled children receive a lifeline from ssi but the bottom line is that we shouldn't try to figh
